Buy this book. Take a deep breath. Then read like mad…who knows if you’ll have enough time to finish?

Editorial Reviews

The Washington Post
Although the writing is breezy, the material is not. If your knowledge of the apocalypse stops at the Four Horsemen or nuclear war, cartoonist Steven Appleby and writer Art Lester will dazzle and depress you with the breadth of their end-times arcana…there's a reason that dark comedy has a passionate following: By talking and laughing about our most paralyzing and profound fears, we're able to manage them…The Coffee Table Book of Doom is paradoxically just as likely to quiet existential dread as it is to excite it.
—James Norton
